Ino Choyo (井野チョイ), known by the username Ryne (リーン), was one of the 10,000 players trapped in «Sword Art Online». She was a founding member of a Clearer guild called «Brightscale».


Ino is a tall and curvaceous young woman with an hourglass figure.[1] As a ranged crowd-controller Ino wears lightweight cloth armor which offers minimal protection whilst maximising movement.[2]


Ino was patient, in possession of a great attention span, and was experienced at handling children. Momoko and Akiye opened up to her following their trust-breaking meeting with Loki and subsequently introduced her to Kenji.[3] In was this introduction that led to her joining Kenji's pre-guild party.[1] Her most defining trait, however, was her tremendous business sense. Ino was the Treasurer of «Brightscale» and spearheaded several ventures on the lower floors designed to drum-up a customer-base for the twins and bring in money for her guild-mates, whilst offering services for the tourists who wished to experience the sights of Aincrad but had't the means to venture out of the safe-zones.[4]

Prior to joining «Brightscale» Ino was a solo player. Before she acquired her «Chakram» she fought using a combination of bait-and-hit manoeuvres with the «Throwing Blade» Skill before attacking her target in close-quarters with her «Martial Arts» Skill.[1]

Ino is described as a ranged crowd-controller who supports the primary DPS through use of her «Chakram».[2] In normal situations from the 3rd Floor onward this meant she was Sojiro's backup, but in a raid-party setting this extended to Kenji.[6]

Battle-skills aside Ino is a businesswoman. Her «Purchase Negotiation» allows her to buy cheaply whilst her «Sales Negotiation» allows her to sell at a markup, and this allowed her to stockpile materials for Momoko and Airi.[4] She had a finger on the pulse of Aincrad's market and was constantly alert for new marketing opportunities.[1]
